AABC 2014 - AABTAM Symposium: Advanced Automotive Battery Technology, Application and Market - Session 3
Lithium-Ion Batteries for High-Voltage Hybrids and PHEVs
Lithium Ion is increasing its market share in conventional high-voltage hybrids and has become the predominant battery technology to power the emerging plug-in hybrids. Cell chemistry and mechanical design vary among developers as they try to balance safety, durability, performance, and cost to improve the value proposition of the technology. In this session, automotive battery technology specialists will present design and performance data from their HEV and PHEV offerings and discuss the chosen designs.
Session Chairman:Matthias Ullrich, Manager Advanced Battery Technology,
Dr. Matthias Ullrich manages advanced battery technology at Volkswagen AG where he is in charge of the predevelopment of battery technology and development of battery modular concepts with a focus on management system, safety, and life. From 1994 to 2000 he was with VARTA where he worked on lithium ion cells development and automotive battery systems.
